    Police find bomb in London, launch terrorism probe

    LONDON (Reuters) - British police defused a bomb in an abandoned car in London's theatre district on Friday and launched a counter-terrorism investigation.

    The bomb, which Sky News quoted unidentified sources as saying was "potentially massive", was found inside a light green Mercedes left outside a nightclub in the early hours of Friday, a police officer quoted witnesses as saying.

    The witnesses said the occupant drove "erratically" before smashing into some bins outside the nightclub and running off. Bouncers from the nightclub investigated, saw what looked like gas canisters inside the vehicle and called the police.

    Officers sealed off the area at around 2 a.m. (0100 GMT) and found a bomb, the Metropolitan police said.

    "They discovered what appeared to be a potentially viable explosive device. This was made safe," they said, adding that counter-terrorism officers were investigating.

    The discovery came hours after new Prime Minister Gordon Brown named a cabinet to succeed Tony Blair. It posed a first major challenge for Brown's administration, and particularly his new home secretary, Jacqui Smith.

    Oh come on!!

    Don't you understand it was all a scam by Pres Bush to keep the peoples attention off his failed foreign policy?

    Hell, the bomb was probably made at Haliburton under orders from Dick Cheney
